    Dear Kirk, Oh! I will surely miss your soothing voice on the sunday show, “The big man upstairs.” I trully pray you have met him and received his warm embrace for leading many to Christ with that singular programme. I will miss u and I know the Smooth family have lost a great guy indeed! R.I.P.

    I love reggae music, but Kirk brings it to live every Saturday evening (9pm-1am)with his baritone voice and great laughter behind the microphone makes every Saturday evening, an evening to look forward to. What a miss!
